Yay! I have my fabrics picked out and posted in Flickr. I am always a little surprised at how BIG Amy Butler bags turn out, but with two kids I somehow always manage to find a use for all that space ;)

Beautiful! My daughter would LOVE the blue one. And how crazy was that Vikings stadium video? I keep watching it because it's just so incredible.
That song was so cute! Reminds me of this song/singer here in the US: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1AJmKkU5POA

Well that's just ridiculously cute! My MIL had a Scottie when she was a kid that she still talks about- I'd love to give this to her!

Hmm- All time favorite? I've only been in "the game" for about 6 months, but Moda's Wonderland line was the first one that made me go WOW and get a bit obsessive!

I like to donate to my local animal shelter. What little I can donate goes so much farther for a small local group than for a large international organization. Since they have to wash things so often, handmade isn't a great option for them, but this post has inspired me to see if they'd be interested in something handmade to sell in their gift shop!

My perfect Mother's Day would be breakfast with my hubby and my girls (made by them while I sleep in!), followed by uninterrupted QUIET sewing time for the rest of the day, maybe with a little time for a nap thrown in!

I LOVE the fabric on that top! Which PR pattern is it, it looks great! And I have to say, the calendar behind you cracked me up, it really looks like that snake is going after your little chicky! :D

Thanks all! Alisa- It was SUPER easy (once I figured out the best way to go about it- I started out making it way more complicated than it needed to be). It was a great first project. Nope, not vintage fabric- I got it at a WONDERFUL local quilting store that went out of business. I bought a ton of fabric there a couple of years ago, when learning to sew was still a gleam in my eye. :) I cut off the selvage so I don't know what it is, but I want to say it was with all the Jane Sassaman stuff?

That quilt is fantastic! And I love the skirt, I have a hard time finding things that will button up at the top too.
